DZA and 183rd bring you their fifth installment of the wrestling inspired Ringside series. Like the others before it, I was fond of this EP. Fun concept and it showcases Smoke’s classic NY style. He’s

Chicago hip hop artist ‘Femdot’ just pulled off a pretty cool move. This past year he dropped three EPs, titled Fo(u)r, Thr(we) and To(U) respectively. Today he released the U(No) EP, completing the sequence. In

Mach-Hommy – H.B.O. (Haitain Body Odor)

March 6, 2017 rhymebeat 0

Another Hommy project!? This dude is starting to have Cal Ripken levels of consistency. H.B.O. (Haitain Body Odor) actually came out in the physical form last year, but was just released on SoundCloud to the

Karriem Riggins – Headnod Suite

February 24, 2017 rhymebeat 0

Second album from the Detroit drummer/producer/musical genius. Just like Alone Together, I was pretty blown away by this record. The beats are varied, polished and full of bounce. Some sound more like hip hop, others

Stormzy – Gang Signs & Prayer

One of my favorite memories of hip hop so far in my young life has to be when Stormzy’s ‘Shut Up’ came on when I was in a club in Bath, England last year. My

Oddisee – The Iceberg

February 24, 2017 rhymebeat 1

Man, I really am marveled by this streak Oddisee is on. I’ve always loved the Brooklyn via DC artist’s music – but he’s been on a different type of fire these past couple releases. The

Tha God Fahim – Dreams of Medina 2

February 22, 2017 rhymebeat 0

Fahim is back! Didn’t take long – dude drops a project almost every month it seems like. And I’m completely okay with it. One of those artists who redefines consistency. Just when you think he’s

Half-a-Mil – Half-a-Mil 2 EP

February 22, 2017 rhymebeat 0

Second EP from Half-a-Mil. If I’m being honest I think I liked the first one a little better. This was good, but I prefer the more smooth laid-back beats in comparison to upbeat/poppy production. There

Knxwledge – GREENTXTS.V1

February 21, 2017 rhymebeat 0

Knxwledge might not sleep. The rate at which he releases albums is astounding. And the most impressive thing is that he’s been doing this for years now. GREENTXTS.V1 is smooth collection of oldies samples and

Jonwayne – Rap Album Two

February 17, 2017 rhymebeat 0

Ooooooo this is some heat right here! Might be my favorite Wayne LP. It’s packed with dense, insightful rhymes and slick production front to back – how perfect is this dude’s rap voice too? Silk.

Some more leftovers from the Skin sessions. That album was one of my favorites from last year – always down to listen to music from that time period. From his Australian self-titled solo debut to

Fat Joe & Remy Ma – Plata O Plomo

February 17, 2017 rhymebeat 0

Time to be honest. I didn’t really enjoy this. Love these two artists in their own regards, each legends in my mind, but this collab album just didn’t do it for me. There were a
